Kang Tae Oh, the star of “Extraordinary Attorney Woo,” made an appearance on “Kim Shin Young’s Hope Song at Noon” on MBC FM4U on July 29.
Woo Young Woo (Park Eun Bin), a young attorney with Asperger’s condition, joins a prestigious law firm in the drama. The smart Woo Young Woo, who has an IQ of 164, a strong memory, and a creative thought process, graduates at the top of her class from the esteemed Seoul National University for both undergraduate and law school, yet she still struggles in social situations.
Kang Tae Oh began by expressing his pleasure about appearing on the radio show. I’m very scared because it’s a live broadcast, but I’ll just enjoy myself and remember it fondly, he said.
The 10th episode of “Extraordinary Attorney Woo” received an average nationwide rating of 15.2 percent, according to Nielsen Korea. “How about you come on the show again if the audience ratings surpass 20%,” radio DJ Kim Shin Young said. Kang Tae Oh eagerly accepted the offer and added, “I’d be incredibly grateful,” in response.
Concerning the kiss scene from episode 10 that went viral, Kang Tae Oh explained, “It was late, and as you saw, we had to film in the hallway of an apartment, so we had to be quiet. I was very nervous because it was a kiss scene. I talked more sweetly to Eun Bin noona than usual.”
On the line “I think it would be better if you open up your mouth a bit more,” the actor confessed, “I was burdened about what to do. I thought that line would change depending on how I said it. So I tried to check out the atmosphere at the scene. Eun Bin noona led the romantic atmosphere while acting, so it just happened naturally.”
Kang Tae Oh thought back to the first time he saw the script for “Extraordinary Attorney Woo.” “Honestly, I can’t read quickly, but I just absorbed [this script],” he said. The same is true with delectable cuisine. You can easily eat it. The phrases in the play seemed to melt in my mouth since it was such a passionate drama. Regardless of the part, I believed it would be fantastic to join [the drama] and declared that I would absolutely do it.
He said, “Lee Joon Ho (the name of his character) got a little frisky,” in reference to the scene where Woo Young Woo’s eyelash is removed. I refuted the claim that Lee Joon Ho is like a fox, which was made by several.
“Extraordinary Attorney Woo” airs every Wednesday and Thursday at 9 p.m. KST.
